Having access to a haircut may seem just a simple luxury for some of us, Truth is, the impacts it has on our wellbeing are immeasurable. A simple haircut is proven to help increase our self worth and create the foundations for personal growth and self improvement. Overall improving our mental health and productivity levels.
My business will aim to provide free haircuts to the community at food banks, hostels, safe houses and community centres which will be made possible through offering paid services and pay it forward services.
I am looking to establish a more inclusive hairdressing experience which steps away from the hairdressing industry normal. I am passionate about building a business that doesn't thrive on luxury but enables everyone access to necessity. The business will provide haircuts to paying customers that will allow me to offer free services where they are needed most. I aim to eventually create a mobile salon experience that can be enjoyed by anyone unable to attend a mainstream hair salon.
I will undertake further training in mental health support and domestic abuse awareness, aswell as being conscious of sensory impairment issues that I can tailor my services around. The services will be carried out in partnership with community projects to ensure everyone that need to, has access to personal care
I will use cruelty free and vegan products where possible and aim to keep energy usage down to a minimum.
I really don't want to wait to begin giving free haircuts and unfortunately as the business is so new there is no available funds in the pay it forward pot to enable me to afford to give them at this time, so I am looking to raise funds to allow me to start offering the free haircuts and fund the initial phase of my project, whilst I continue to work on creating a paying clientele for the business to create further revenue!
